I've been concerned about the same thing. It appears that there would be an overlap at the license plate with the jerry cans holder and a ladder. Can you e-mail me some photos of what you did or your set-up? Very curious.

Do you have a SD rack??!!! or just on the lookout for one? Last I heard ECR has exactly one left of the very last batch ever to be made so if you want it you better call soon...

I had to re-make the pivot points and beef up the bracket to handle the added leverage. Essentially the hole was moved back two inches and over one inch...

I'm visiting Nola this weekend but have a long list of things I have to do. If I get a chance and remember among everything else I'll snap some pictures for you otherwise you'll have to wait a couple of weeks for her to arrive in LA

that side is almost clear, the real issue is with the passenger side ladder and where the tire sits: unmodified you can't open the door with a wheel on the carrier...

No SD rack, just was looking around at racks and everything with a ladder appears to overlap the driver's side jerry can holder on the SG tire carrier.

Barry,

Not sure how exactly this is set up. I cannot find any pictures from Rovers Accessories. From your description, it sounds just like how my stock gas tank is set up on my Series III. Kind of hard to see but if you look right under the 2 white dots on the sill you can see the tank:

It's a known problem for the Series trucks. But you can get this:

I just don't tell my passengers they are sitting on top of the gas tank. It's hard enough to get chicks to get in my truck.

Ahh... well like I said most of the trickiness I haad to deal with was on the other side so my solution may not be relivant for what you're concerned with if you're going to go with a non SD rack.

Well, Jon I would hope so. The broad equity market rebounded nicely in 2009. Investment grade corporate bond funds had a banner year as well (thanks to declining rates and wide spreads.)

Comparing the 2009 internal rate of return on an array of equity and/or bond mutual funds to a (mythical) 4.75% annualized rate of return on liquid cash is not an apples to apples match by any stretch of the imagination, though.

They are three separate asset classes and the risk profiles for each are night and day different.

I guess that I should have been real specific in what I meant. I will try again: OK hypothetically I have $25,000 in cash sitting on my dining room table (never mind where I got it). What do I do with it??? I want to buy a D90. I also want to get this cash somewhere other than my dinning room table, because it is losing value due to inflation. At a 4.74% car loan rate I would put the cash sitting on my dining room table in an investment that historically has a better return than inflation like a mutual fund (like all my money goes after living expenses). I am not in my 60s, therefore a CD or savings account would not be a proper investment for me. I never said anything about a CD or savings account being better, or something I would invest in! I never mentioned it because that investment is one I would not even consider.
OK, hypothetical scenario II, the Credit Union is now charging 10% interest for a car loan. I would pay for the D90 with the cash sitting on my dining room table. (just to be clear I do not have $25,000 in cash sitting on my dining room table)

Haha, loving this thread. Some random comments.

Gustavo you nearly had me picking up the phone

I bought my truck having seen nothing but pictures but did have two knowledgeable people look at it and drive it (one worked at the dealer - they referred him when I called for an independent inspection). There is no way any of the mechanical problems I have had could have been identified beforehand if I had flown out to look at it.

Barry, the tank is a non-issue. As others have said if for some bizarre reason Josh agreed with your safety concerns he could simply disable it and empty it. I look forward to seeing pics one day of your children wearing helmets while being pushed in their strollers (which is a very dangerous activity). LOL

Finally to keep this on post, Josh, don't worry about rack interference with the tire carrier. You can get a custom ladder made no problem and it shouldn't be expensive.

That is what I plan on doing as soon as I find a Safarigard rear tire carrier. I should have bought one when Casey was making his rounds on this forum. But I didn't have that warm and fuzzy feeling with all the previous problems others had in the past.
You can have on made to your specs by Wolf Fabrication. It should be easy for him to fabricate on to work with a rack/ladder setup.

I just phoned Mr Maddox, and one of his associates will stop by at the office to pick up the check. They promised me a rate of 35% on a one year term; I couldn't refused.

"if your liquid flows to 8 figures you could get twice that ...

or

for 6 figures , I can promisse a ROI of 28%"

First, just now had the time to read the whole thread- thought it another joke initially- way to go Josh, congrats for sure!! Now, come on down to safari in a week on the way to Asheville, great first experience with your new 90.

As far as the whole site unseen deal- no one, litterally -can detect what will be the outcome of a used car, much less a Defender. I just took in a 175k mile '94 maintained by a CAT mechanic and it is fantastic. I have had low mile ones that cost a fortune to get right. I don't claim to be an expert, but I have had one or two of them...

Fuel tank- used to be the way of early Defenders- even military ones- and all those Series trucks to boot. I would bet serious money that there are many more oil line caused fires than side mounted fuel tanks.

Now go enjoy the truck for a while, and come on down next w/e!! Nice find Barry.

Everyone has to make their own decisions on such things and there are arguments either way... personally I have a very low tolerance for risking leveraged capital and consequently wouldn't take a loan for any vehicle for a rate that high. The offering would have to be significantly lower (and fixed income securities significantly higher) for that to be a worthwhile trade-off... but everyone's stomach for risk is different so ymmv

I paid cash for every vehicle I own... and consequently the D90 is by FAR the most expensive vehicle I have

Charles,


Seriously, my company had pay investors 10% return on cash investments , only condition was 1 year minimum, most of the investments have a collateal so no one takes an actual risk.

want to pick the phone now?

(We should start a separate thread on this investment discussion...)

Well, I'd be interested in talking to you about it. The claim of a 10% annualized rate of return with 'no risk' gets my attention, for a little while anyway. (Not to be argumentative, but there's ALWAYS some type of risk.)

How can I contact you?
